32's on 3.73's- JK?

IS anyone running 32" tires on a JK with 3.73 gears that can speak to the performance?

I am happy with the off road and on road power I have running the stock tires (225/70/16 - 29").

my question is will I see a tremendous loss of power or torque off road if I keep my current gears. I'd like to just change my tire size without having to regear.

Any thoughts?

no issues at all. it's a jeep, not a race car. if you keep that in mind, you'll be fine.
32" tires and 3.73 is a factory setup on the automatic jk.

Awesome! I love the balance of power (on road/off road)currently and didn't want to screw it up

i like the 3.73 myself, it's pretty much a perfect balance, like you said.

My wifes 08 JK is running 32.8" 258/75/16's with no issues except a little rub up front. But no major offroading done with this Jeep yet.

32s are stock on the Sahara and I have the 3.73, I haven't noticed any problems, it handles great. I will be switching to a smaller wheel but I'm sticking with the same diameter tire.
